Donor Privacy Policy

Ethical standards and values are the cornerstone for creating and maintaining trust. At the Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Ohio, we are dedicated to ensuring that donor information remains private. In keeping with this, Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Ohio does not share or sell donor information, such as names, addresses, emails, phone numbers, etc. In some cases, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Ohio may contact individual donors seeking approval to publish individual donor stories within the donor network on organizational publications. However, this information will NEVER be shared without the prior approval of the donor. All donor requests to remain anonymous will be honored.

We reserve the right to update or change this Donor Privacy Policy at anytime. When the policy is updated it will be posted at the bottom of theDonorRightsPolicyandDonorPrivacyPolicy.
